I must have bent the 2 pins near the latch. They are not very hard metal(maybe pot metal) so I bent them out a little and it works fine now. Thanks, Earl

Why doesn't door close?

Check the large stud or pin that is in the door frame, this is called the NADER pin, it may be out of line with the latch. The latch may be sprung also.

Why wont the trunl latch close on a 2001 mercedes s class?

Its possible the latch got relocked while opened, so check and see. Unlock trunk with key while opened, and see if it doesnt reopen the latch and allow it to close.

As normal all 4 doors lock after you drive off then dummy light stating a door is adjar, then all the door locks click as if they want to relock again even though they are in the lock position.

you have a door ajar pin switch locate which one, have someone open each door seperately, u should hear a chime when door opens, if you do not, that is suspect door.....but check all doors as you may have more then one sticking.....spray a lubricate like wd40 or similiar into latch....lots is good, now close the door approx 10-15 times, and spray again if not fixed continue to close again and spray.....this needs to work into latch to free up pin switch....hopefully all would not hurt to do all doors

hope this helps....let me know how you make out, if this does not fix pin switch will need to be replaced, BUT i have never been patient

Lid switch assembly

go to for a picture of this units lid doesnt show it very well, but it will give you an idea of how it goes back together.
what you need to do is put the lever around the switch first, then put the plastic box on the switch and arm. then carefully hold the assembly together and try to get it under the top and put the 2 screws back into the housing holes.
it sounds simple but i have done this before and its not easy. you just need to be careful to get the screws into the mounts correctly or it wont hold together to allow the switch to activate when the lid is closed.
by the way was there a reason you took the switch off??
maybe because it wont spin?
by the way this unit is not 30 years old, maybe 20 at the most.
the drive couplings are a weak spot for these and you may have a broken one. it wont spin or agitate but will drain if this is broken.
